    Walked out the front door and the John Deere and hayrake looked lonely, but looked nice with the lush green backdrop. So I took a pic.....

    Right out my front door! You can't see the mountains in the background, they're all hidden by the fog. I cant remember it ever being this green in August ........its usually all dead and brown from the heat and lack of rain. I cant remember the last time we had this much 'balanced' weather in the summer........if it keeps up we should have a spectacular fall!

    Nothing like a tractor, even if it's your neighbors! :)

    Sad article in this morning's paper...gas/diesel thefts are on the rise (no doubt tied to fuel prices at the pumps). Commercial construction vehicles and agricultural vehicles are a prime target, as they're often left out overnight ready for the next day's work. These low-life scumbags will siphon fuel from anything they think they can get away with. <> Rick

    Scotty, you should never leave the tractor out by itself. Leave the baler out as well to keep it company.:)

    Tractors are like horses. You can't have just one, or they will get lonely...........

    I thought it was a Steiner...But I guess it could be a Ventrac.

    Awsome display of equipment...All that equipment and no one mowed the field!:p

    That is a Steiner. The Ventrac is built by the Steiner family, so you are not exactly wrong.

    Even with all the front end loaders and skid steer loaders you would be amazed how often I can't find a loader when one is needed.

    You always need one more tractor than you have. Great picture!
